Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective ‘Conan The Barbarian’ Figure: The Conskipper Review

The One:12 Collective line from Mezco Toys quickly established itself as a fan favorite by presenting some of the highest quality action figures available from a variety of licensees such as Marvel and DC heroes as well as horror icons like Michael Myers, Leatherface, and Ridley Scott’s original Alien.

Mezco’s first premium Conan The Barbarian figure joins the line with all of the attributes one expects from the super detailed figures, satisfying legions of collectors and Conan fans everywhere.

The figure is modeled on one of Frank Frazetta’s famous paintings of Conan (which graces the box cover and the cover of one of the original Lancer paperback collections of Robert E. Howard’s stories in Conan the Adventurer). Frazetta defined the look of the lone Cimmerian warrior for generations, and this figure represents his painting come to life.

The One:12 Collective Conan figure includes over 30 points of articulation and the usual slew of swap out heads, hands, and weapons that the One:12 line if famous for. Looking for the traditional stoic warrior? Mezco has you covered. Do you prefer Conan’s teeth-gnashing, ready for battle face? Then get ready for some Hyborian bloodshed with the alternative head.

With four pairs of hands for the figure (eight in total), Conan is prepared to hold any of the weapons or accessories provided in the set, from a scimitar and broadsword to a battle axe and dagger (for those times that the Conan goes into stealth mode). Conan can also sport a shield if you wish, and a choice of interchangeable loincloths, a removable cape, belt, various sheaths, and mid-calf boots. Each accessory and weapon is highly detailed, matching the care spent on the Frazetta sculpt of the figure to further bringing the character from the bookshelf to your mantle or display case.

With all of the choices that the collector has to display their favorite barbarian, it is clear to see why the One:12 Collective figures constantly sell out and quickly become highly sought after waitlist items. The collectability of Conan the Barbarian merchandise and figures will certainly make the One:12 figure an even more elusive one, so it would be in your best interest to get on the waitlist while you still can.
